It’s been a really busy last few weeks. All families will receive report cards on Wednesday next week. If you have any concerns please take the opportunity to discuss this with the class teacher.
We welcome a number of new students to our school who have enrolled in the last few weeks. Thank you to the students in the various classes who have supported and made the following students welcome; MJ, Zion, Jasper and Tyler.
Next term we have our year 3-6 students attending camps.
The year 5/6’s will be attending Arbury Park from Monday 15th August – Wednesday 17th August (Term 3, week 4)
Year 3 and 4 students will also get the opportunity to participate in a 1 night/1 day camp at AFL MAX.
Classes will attend the camp from Thursday 29th September – Friday 30th September. (Term 3, Week 10)
Further information will be distributed once numbers are confirmed. It’s great to provide these opportunities to our students and be received in such a positive manner.
During the July school holidays, building 2 will receive a much needed facelift with the windows being repaired and the building being painted.
2023 Reception Enrolments
Le Fevre Peninsula Primary School has started the process of planning for 2023. With a large number of Year 6 students transitioning to High School, it is important that we can plan with accurate enrolment numbers. If you have a child/ren who intend to start Reception in 2023, please complete the “Registration of Interest” forms and return them before the end of term 2.
It is with great pleasure to announce that Leah Koen has been appointed as the Deputy Principal for the next 5 years at LPPS. Leah is well known to our community and her experience and wealth of information is an asset to our school.
Kelly Jones has also been re-appointed in her position as Coordinator – Literacy. Kelly has been instrumental this year in re-structuring our Literacy programme.

At today's assembly we introduced our Young Leaders to the school community for 2022. We have 13 students from Year 3-6 who meet every week to plan whole school activities. We are very proud of the work they are doing in our school.
We are excited to launch our offical Le Fevre Peninsula Primary School Facebook page. This will be used to keep our community updated with the fantastic learning going on around our school as well another platform to remind families of important diary dates.
A friendly reminder this is not our main source of communication and any matters regarding the school or students must be done through the Front Office or classroom teacher.
Please head on over and like our page!
G’Day, LPPS community.
Well we are at the half way mark of the school year.
Many of our students are learning new and calmer ways to manage their own learning choices through our ‘wrist band’ strategy and the benefits for them and our whole learning environment has been pleasing to see.
I am working with many of the classes with the focus on helping to show, and then reinforce positive behaviours for learning and indeed life.
I love when I am able to join in with a class’ 'Morning Circle’ and see the excited faces who greet each other by name and get ready for a great day of learning. There is nearly always a ‘fun fact to be learnt’. For example, did you know that yesterday the 30th of June, was the 84th anniversary of the 1st appearance of Superman in DC Comics' Action Comics Series issue #1. In the Morning Circle, our students also choose for themselves a learning behaviour or 2 that they want to focus on for the day.
Two weeks ago, the whole school enjoyed the Australia wide ‘Anti Bullying’ production of Saving Lil and Archie by Brainstorm Productions. As with previous years, the students were very focused and learnt some valuable facts about how to stay safe online and how to care for each other.
I wish everyone a safe and relaxing holiday period.
Till next time,
This week Room 9 and 14 came to together for an end of term party. We wanted to have a special day to say goodbye to a Room 9 classmate, Lilly who will be going to her new school next term. We wish Lilly all the best!
We are also celebrating the wonderful results we have had this semester in Reading. Next term, all year one students across the state will be involved in the “Phonics Screening Check” where they will show their knowledge of all the sounds they have been learning! It’s great to see the hard work they are doing in class as well as seeing the benefits of regular reading at home. Keep up the great work Year Ones!
Room 15 and Room 16 have been working hard to improve their place value knowledge. Having a good understanding of place value helps us to make sense of numbers in our world. We have been making number lines, skip counting and working with classmates to be able to read and write 3 digit numbers.
In Room 4 we have been learning about and working on creating a more positive environment for ourselves and each other. We have been exploring how to create a better sense of wellbeing, as if our minds aren’t feeling healthy and positive it makes it really hard to learn.
A healthy outside starts with a healthy inside!
We have been using positive affirmations, this means talking to ourselves in a more positive way to help us become more resilient, persistent and confident towards learning. Positive affirmations are sayings that you can tell yourself when you wake up, throughout the day and especially when you’re facing challenges.
Some of our favourite affirmations include:
- You can do it. Stay positive.
- With every breath I feel stronger.
- I’m unstoppable!
- Wonderful things are going to happen today.
- I am excited to learn new things today.
Did you know the more you talk to yourself in a positive way, the more your thinking can change? You can actually train your brain to think more positively instead of negatively!
We have also been doing interoception after recess and lunch. However, we just started to add interoception in the morning as a part of our morning circle. We noticed almost instantly how much calmer we felt in the morning and we have been able to focus on our learning much more!
Some of our favourite interoception activities include doing pushups, planks, superman, infinity breathing, starfish breathing and starting a fire.
These activities can also be done at home to help students regulate and become ready for their next task such as getting ready for school or getting ready for bed.
